Robert Johnson and others never gave due credit where credit is due . . . 'Come On In My Kitchen' and others that have the verse 'Don't want no peaches, don't shake no tree. Get out of my garden let my peaches be.' Nearly word for word taken from 'The Confessions Of St. Augustine' (the Penguin Classics translation) - classic stuff. BTW I was 13 when I read 'The Confessions ...' for the first time - highly influential at the time, I still find it a good read.
